Music Works! Education Programs
The Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra reaches over 10,000 students on Cape Cod and the Islands through its interactive MusicWorks! education programs. Each program is designed to connect children and youth to the orchestra and promote an appreciation of classical music in future generations. Through its Adult Education programs, the CCSO enhances the overall concert experience for listeners of all ages.
